There is an earlier recording that actually features Gershwin in the orchestra.It's the very first from 1929 on Victor under the baton of Nat Shilkret recorded shortly after it's premiere over the NBC radio network by Walter Damrosch. The recording session was short a glockensphiel player, so Gershwin pitched in. Worth finding.
